Currently trying to transition from console to pc. Im looking to play competitive fps games at 120-144 fps (Overwatch, CSGO, Fortnite, etc.). My max budget is $1500 for a monitor, tower, and peripherals. I'd prefer to get parts from my local Fairfax, VA micro center but its ok if I have to order online. Open to any feedback on the build before I go ahead and order the parts.
MOBO: I've heard that the X570 works best with the 3600. All I need is something with ease of installation and ethernet connection.
Storage: A friend recommended that I drop the SSD down to 500gb and get a 1 TB hard drive. Is having a hard drive the better option option or is it more price efficient to just get the SSD?
Video Card: I was planning on getting one of the aftermarket video cards. PCPartPicker hasn't updated their site yet. https://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-Triple-Backplate-Graphics/dp/B07WC7683C/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=sapphire+rx+5700+xt+pulse&qid=1565809082&s=gateway&sr=8-1.
Power Supply: I waited to long and the sale on the corsair power supply ended. Found a similar price at the Fairfax, Microcenter. The only problem is that it only has a 90 day warranty. Are there any better power supply options at a similar price?
